Backpacking through Eastern Europe

Student blogger, Danny Huizinga, didn't go the typical route around Europe. He and his college group travel friends decided to see destinations a little less common to many Westerners: Eastern Europe. This part of Europe is rich with history, arts, and culture. Danny tells us why he's glad he made the choice he did. While most people went straight to Spain, we decided to start our three weeks of independent travel in Eastern Europe! It’s been an amazing experience so far, and I am so glad we made that decision. The trip started with a flight to Krakow, Poland. This wasn't the first … [Read more...]

Love on Display at Checkpoint Charlie

Student blogger, Kandace Little, is a fun-loving, quirky girl from Texas who writes things the way she sees them. Today, we see her funny and honest outlook, as well as a serious side of her that reflects on history and true love as seen on display in Berlin, Germany. A train station is the ideal place to people watch. There you can see an eclectic mix of all ages, all with different reasons for hopping onto the train. I guess you could say this is a fairly creepy hobby, especially one to admit in such a public forum, but don’t knock it till you try it. Seriously. Humans can be very … [Read more...]

What Makes Us Different From Other Travel Providers?

Last week, a couple Millennium Tours representatives traveled to San Diego for the Forum on Education Abroad's Tenth Annual Conference in San Diego (we're privileged to be members!). We had a blast—and learned a lot too. One thing people kept asking us was, "What makes you different from other travel providers?" We've got several reasons like our custom-crafted programs and unmatched customer service, but here are a few more reasons we wanted to highlight this week. We guarantee competitive rates and unique program offerings, so why not experience the Millennium Tours difference? One … [Read more...]

Berlin: Where History and Contemporary Coexist

Berlin is a fascinating city, full of history yet surprisingly modern. Obviously, one of the main reasons people visit is because of the Berlin Wall. Divided into two halves after World War II, Berlin represents the conflict between freedom and communism— and the triumph of the former in 1989. Several museums document the numerous escape attempts people made to try to get out of the GDR (Communist east side) to the free side of West Berlin. Some hid people under the hoods of their cars, some built tunnels under the Berlin Wall, and one family even built a hot-air balloon to fly over … [Read more...]

When Music Knows No Country Borders

This year, I was my own Valentine. Yes, I know Valentine’s Day was more than a month ago. I acknowledge that it is probably one of the most overrated holidays in existence, and that I don’t need a man to buy me nice things... yada yada. This year’s was different. Well, considering I couldn't wine and dine myself within the confines of social normativity, I opted for the next best thing—I wrangled my roommate into going to see Dallas Green play live in Tilburg, the Netherlands. For those of you not up to speed on this particular artist, he is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter who plays … [Read more...]

Discovering New Places & Uncovering Heritage

Part of the beauty of Europe is the ability to travel to so many places—even if you just have one day! Rather than one big trip, this week was comprised of several of these shorter trips. On Tuesday, our class was cancelled so I went to Luxembourg with a few friends! It’s just a short three-hour train ride. Luxembourg is a unique place—43 percent of the population is foreign nationals, and the kids learn four languages in school. For comparison, the country is smaller than Rhode Island. We visited the American Cemetery, where General Patton from WWII is buried, and had a great … [Read more...]
